A fearless tour guide clicking a selfie with a cheetah has gone viral on the internet. Posted by IFS officer Clement Ben, the short clip shows a group of tourists sitting in a safari car. Moments later, a curious cheetah climbs on the open-top safari car and begins using it as a viewpoint.
In the nerve-racking video, the tour guide is seen getting up from his seat to get a selfie. Further in the video, the big cat is seen sitting inches away from the guide’s head, while he is seen telling the tourists, “Don’t worry, I am your guide.” The cheetah, however, gave him a spectacular selfie while exploring the vehicle. The video ends abruptly, there is no information on how long did the tourists wait for the cheetah to get down from the car.
